Mixed-Aged Classes

Our children are taught in mixed-age classes and benefit tremendously from this approach; older children become role models and leaders, learning how to lead by example and assist their peers. For younger children, the opportunity to engage, play and learn alongside older pupils enables them to develop friendships and relationships beyond their age group, which serves as a motivation in and beyond the classroom setting. As a consequence, children at Biddick Primary School learn to play across different ages and classes, which adds to the 'family feeling' across the whole school community. 

Another key benefit is the close relationships that pupils forge with staff. This enables children to develop trust and ensures that we know and understand our children really well, adapting to their needs in order to make learning fun, engaging and accessible for all. 

In order to manage mixed-aged classes across the school, our curriculum has been specifically designed and tailored to ensure that all children's needs are met, regardless of their age. This is achieved in most subjects through the use of a two-year rolling programme, whereas in others, age-specific content is taught discretely to ensure that children are accessing appropriate content pitched at the right level to enable them to succeed. 


We are incredibly proud of the curriculum that we have developed at Biddick. Explore our Learning section of the website to learn more about our curriculum intent and the rationale behind our curriculum design.
